Found a couple of these in my local Dobbies garden centre, a couple of days ago. Sadly, I do not have the room to grow one, but was impressed with the size a condition for a garden centre Nepenthes.

They probably just got them in and they haven't been abused too much yet ;)

I might go and give my local dobbies (30 miles away, but fortunately beside my school) a look for this then...One I've been wanting..

I will be banished from the Nep community for saying this, but I think Miranda is a fantastic Nep. Incredibly tough, big beautiful pitchers, fast growing-
The one thing making it unpopular is that it's common....
Compare this to some of the species that have cult status such as aristolochoides, which is ghastly to behold and tricky to grow well.....
